Print Mixing: Striped Tanks, Shorts and Floral Kimonos With Cross Body Bags

Just like last summer, I'm finding kimonos and shorts are a frequent go-to option in the heat. To mix things up a little, I tried some print mixing, adding floral print kimonos on top of the striped tanks. I always love print mixing with stripes, they just go with everything.

What I wore:

Jacket: thrifted Edited floral and bird print kimono
Necklace: Diva long red heart necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this for a very hot and humid day! We took the boys to the Bayside steam railway again. It's a huge set of miniature train tracks and you get to sit on the carriages of mini steam trains and zip around the tracks. One of the safety requirements is closed in shoes, so I wore my Converse despite the humidity.

The striped tank looked great worn just with the shorts alone, but I wanted to cover up my shoulders a little as it was such a sunny day. Like last time we went to the steam railway, I added a kimono on top. This one was a lucky thrift find. I always look in opshops for kimonos but over the years this is the only one I've found! With the red birds in the print, the red Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag seemed like the perfect accessory. Despite the small size, it comfortably held the essentials and the boys water bottles so I had them handy as we went for rides on the train. Turns out that sitting on the back of a tiny train as it steams through the trees creates a lovely cooling breeze too, it was such an enjoyable morning.

After riding on the trains, we walked over to the nearby park to let the boys run around a bit more, but the heat quickly sent us back home to cool off in the air conditioning!

Why I wore it:

Despite having the same outfit formula as what I wore above, I didn't like this outfit as much. I love all of the pieces on their own, this is one of my frequently worn kimonos and you can't beat a classic white striped tank! I just felt it all looked a little off together. I did like how comfortable this was for a morning out with the boys though. We went to the local library and they played a bit in the playground before lunch.

I didn't hate this outfit - there were some things about it I really liked, like how well the pastel pink shorts went with the Rebecca Minkoff peony Darren messenger bag! I will definitely be wearing those two pieces together again!

How You Can Wear It:

Stripes and florals are so fun to wear together! A colourful floral kimono is such an easy piece to add to a summer shorts and striped tank outfit too. It doesn't overheat you but allows you to add more colour and interest to what you're wearing. A basic striped tank is a must have piece you can wear so many different ways.

Plain Tees and Printed Maxi Skirts With Rebecca Minkoff Bags

When the heat hits, I look for simple easy outfits that don't have any unnecessary layers. A plain tee and a printed maxi skirt is simple summer style. And spring style, as I wore these a few weeks ago when it was still spring!

What I wore: 

plain black tee, billabong boho printed red maxi skirt, rebecca minkoff sandals saddle bag SAHM Style | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red | awayfromtheblue

two fashion bloggers printed maxi skirts plain tees colourful spring SAHM style outfit | awayfromtheblue

TeeAtmos & Here black essential v-neck tee
Skirt: thrifted Billabong red printed maxi skirt
ShoesRebecca Minkoff Georgina studded gladiator sandals in blush
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

I adore this skirt so much and it was the first one that came to mind when picking an outfit to wear to meet Sasha. It's so light in the heat and swishes beautifully when you walk, kind of creating its own breeze. The day was forecast to be extremely hot, so we ended up spending more time indoors than anticipated.

Sasha is another Brisbane blogger and while she lives a little distance away from me, we caught up at a mid point in the city, at the state library. The cafe there was lovely and very quiet until I showed up with the boys! In the end we ducked into the kids play area at the library so the boys could run around a little more and we could continue chatting. Always so nice meeting another blogging friend in person, even more so when they are as interesting as Sasha. We spoke for a couple of hours, which seemed to be over in a few minutes, before I took the boys for lunch in the city and headed home.

Keeping things simple with the outfit, I went with a neutral black tee, a red bag to match the red skirt, and my latest necklace purchase to match the gold hardware on the bag. You can see why I enjoy Sasha's blog so much, we have very similar style! Thanks to Mr 4 who kindly took the photo for us.

Why I wore it:

Thankfully this day wasn't as hot as the one above. As you can see, there was even a bit of a breeze! I kept to the simple outfit formula I'd liked so much above, going a little more colourful this time with the basic red tee and navy striped maxi skirt. I accessorised with the baby friendly necklace as we spent the morning at our local ABA group, the topic was baby / toddler massage.

The last time I did a baby massage class my now 2 and a half year old was a tiny little 3 week old, so I was really looking forward to it! I went in with two very eager to help little boys, which quickly turned into me chasing kids around the room in between attempting to practice the massage techniques. I definitely don't do the massage techniques as often as I should, but there are so many benefits to it so I'm going to try do it more often. It's a lot more fun to do when the boys are big enough to give feedback on what they like too!

Stuck with this neutral Rebecca Minkoff Love bag as I still had it out after wearing it a few days before and the grey was a good pairing with the brighter red and navy outfit.

Printed Maxi Skirts Under $50:



How You Can Wear It

Printed maxi skirts can be a little daunting as they are such large pieces of print! You can keep things easy and simple by picking a plain tee to wear with them. You can go with a neutral black like I did in the first outfit, or try something different and add a little more colour like in the second outfit. You can't go wrong pairing a plain basic with a fun printed piece!

Black Tanks, Shorts and Printed Scarves With Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag: Spring SAHM Style

Shorts are a great option to beat the summer heat. When you want to add a little more interest to your outfit, you can always throw on a light scarf. Both of these Fashion Scarf Girl scarves are light viscose which makes them good layers to add. Of course if it's really hot and humid, you can wear a scarf a little differently like I have in the second outfit.

What I wore:

navy geometric mixed print tassel scarf with olive shorts and grey quilted Love bag Rebecca Minkoff | away from blue

Rebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey | away from the blue

ScarfFashion Scarf Girl navy Geo print tassel scarf (c/o)
TankFrench Connection feather foil singlet
ShortsJeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Not the first time I've worn this scarf with olive! I really like navy and olive together. I thought the scarf was a cute completer piece to add to the outfit, as the black tank and olive shorts seemed a little flat. Last time I wore the tank and shorts together I added a kimono.

Despite the hot day, the scarf was a welcome addition as we spent some time in the aircon, trying to do a little more Christmas shopping at the local shopping centre. We ended up coming home empty handed, but with ideas for things to look at further, when we didn't have the boys with us.

Picked my Rebecca Minkoff Love bag to wear as it's a nice neutral that goes with everything and I felt it had been a while since I last wore it. A few months actually!


Last worn: French Connection tank, navy printed scarf, olive embroidered shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Love Bag.

BagRebecca Minkoff Love cross body bag in grey

Why I wore it:

Another basic black tank and shorts outfit dressed up with a scarf. While I did spend a little bit of the day in the aircon at the library with the boys, I felt it was a bit too hot and humid the rest of the day to wear the scarf as a scarf. So I improvised and wore it as a kimono! It's not the first time I've worn a scarf as a kimono, but it's probably my favourite way I've done so.

I think the pink leaf print was so pretty and a nice way to add interest to the plain outfit. Even if I did have to keep readjusting the scarf - this works a little better with square scarves instead of rectangular ones like this. Made it a nice light option for spending the day with the boys though.

Again, I stuck with the classic grey Rebecca Minkoff love bag as it really does go with everything!

Black Tanks Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A black tank is a wardrobe staple. In the warmer months, it looks great with shorts, from detailed embroidered pairs to basic denim ones. If the outfit feels a little plain, you can easily throw on a fun and colourful printed scarf. Draped loosely around your neck for a day spent in air conditioning, or tied as a kimono for a lightweight option on a day you're spending more time in the heat.

30 Ways To Wear: Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Tote Bag In Plum Purple #30wears

I couldn't resist snapping up this little purple mini MAB tote bag in a Shopbop sale 3 years ago. It's been a great addition to my wardrobe over the years, and today I'm celebrating it by making it the star of this month's 30 ways to wear post. Each month I take something from my wardrobe I've worn 30 times or more and make a roundup post showing the different ways you can wear it.

Cost Per Wear

This bag was on sale for $146.25, although I don't recall if it was AUD or USD and the receipt doesn't tell me. Given that it's been worn over 50 times since then, it's getting good cost per wear! $2.71 per wear so far, and that will go down the longer I use the bag. It still looks new! It has a lot more wears to go to get the magic '$1 per wear' people aim for, but I know I will hit that with it eventually. I'm pleased with the cost per wear so far.




30 Ways To Wear A Mini MAB Tote: Video Style







Purple Bag As A Pop Of Colour


how to wear a purple bag with a neutral outfit as a pop of colour | awayfromblue


The easiest way to wear a purple bag - or any colourful bag! - is to keep your outfit neutral and let the bag be the pop of colour. This plum purple mini MAB tote works so well with black and grey outfits. You can continue on the colourful theme with a necklace like I have in the first outfit, or just keep things simple and let the bag be the only bit of colour like I have in the other outfits.


Purple Bag To Accessorise A Pink Outfit

Pink and purple is a colour combination I love to wear together! You'll see it pop up in the other categories too. This purple bag works so nicely when wearing something pink in your outfit. From head to toe pink in a maxi dress, berry pink tops, or a subtle pink printed cami, this purple bag is a wonderful accessory.


Blue Clothes and Purple Bag


ways to wear a purple mini mab tote bag with a blue outfit | awayfromblue


Blue and purple is another go-to colour combination for me, especially as I wear so much blue! Just like with the pink outfits above, this purple bag matches with head-to-toe blue in a maxi dress, or more subtle blues like a navy tee or a chambray maxi skirt.


Matching A Purple Bag to Purple Pieces In Your Outfit


matchy matchy purple outfits with plum rebecca minkoff mini mab tote bag | awayfromtheblue


I will always love a big of matchy-matchy! Even if the shades are slightly different, I think this purple bag looks great worn with other purple pieces in an outfit to tie it all together. You could have a little touch of purple through a tee or tank, or a bolder mix with purple jeans or a purple cardigan - and matching purple accessories! If you love a colour it makes sense to wear a lot of it in one outfit!


Plain Purple Mini MAB Tote Bag With Prints

This cute little boxy tote is so simple to pair with a printed outfit. The plain, block colour means you don't have to worry about patterns clashing. You can do a bit of print mixing like I have in the first outfit, or you can keep things simple and stick to one pattern piece.


Purple Mini MAB Tote Bag In Winter


rebecca minkoff purple mini mab tote bag and winter layers | away from the blue


If you are trying to make the most of your wardrobe year round like I am, you'll find that bags can be worn in any season! This plum purple bag was purchased in the Australian spring of 2015, which means it was an American autumn / winter bag. I've found the colour so easy to wear year round! From simple summer shorts outfits to these layered winter ones, it really works in any season! One thing to note though is that the bag doesn't completely seal up,  o maybe not a good idea on a snowy or wet day!


Purple Mini MAB Tote Bag In Pregnancy


4 pregnancy outfit ideas with Rebecca Minkoff purple mini MAB tote bag | awayfromblue


I do love closing out these 30 ways to wear posts with pregnancy photos, it's so nice looking back on the baby bump! And it proves a very important point I bring up when buying bags - they are always going to fit and look good no matter what! This cute little purple MAB tote is the perfect example - it's holding its structured shape well and it's seen me through 3 years of wear with many more wears left in it!

Navy Tops and Green Pants: Spring SAHM Style (And Instagram Giveaway!)

I've been embracing green and blue together more often recently. It's a colour combination I only started wearing a few years ago. I decided to try it again with green pants and navy tops, this time wearing my olive jeans with navy. I really liked the combination!

What I wore:

Top: Kmart navy bird print peplum frill hem tank
JeansJeanswest Vicki skinny pant in moss green
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

I had the vague idea for this outfit in my head, I hadn't planned it out the night before like I usually do as we were at a wedding. In the morning I was feeling slightly worse for wear after a couple of glasses of champagne and not having drunk anything alcoholic for a couple years due to pregnancy / breastfeeding! I just wanted simple and easy as there were groceries to buy and kids to amuse. I decided to wear the outfit idea I had anyway, without spending time to see if it looked good. I was pleased to find out I really liked the combination.

Was a nice easy outfit, printed tank and skinny jeans. Perfect for a quiet Sunday, or as quiet as a Sunday can be when you have two boys under 5!

It's not the first time I've worn this Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag with olive, I liked the combination of the aqua and olive together. The necklace was a nice matchy-matchy touch, even if the hardware on the necklace is gold and silver on the bag. I've worn this necklace and tank together before too so I knew I'd like the result.


Last worn: bird print tank, tassel necklace, olive skinny jeans, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC.

Why I wore it:

Another nice and simple outfit. Jeans and a tee to take the boys to the local library for music time and to let them have a play at the playground. Again, I'm wearing the Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC with gold pieces even though the chain strap on it is silver. I think the gold foil polka dots on the tee didn't look bad with it!

It's not the first time I've worn these green jeans with a blue top, and I've been wanting to try this particular jeans and tee outfit combination for a while. I really liked it, pleased I finally gave it a wear.

How You Can Wear It:

Blue and green should be seen! It's a fun and bold colour combination to try. For something different, you can try other shades of green and blue together, like navy and olive or navy and forest green. Picking a blue top with a print is another fun way to add more interest to your outfit too.

Monochrome Jeans And Tee Outfits With Pink Rebecca Minkoff Small Darren Bag

You might have noticed this Rebecca Minkoff Darren bag popping up in quite a few posts lately, I've been loving it! Mostly I've been sticking with neutrals when wearing it.

What I wore:

grey jeans with Rebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony | awayfromtheblue

awayfromtheblue instagram | pastel pink scarf and darren bag with black tee grey skinny jeans rainy day spring style

TeeAtmos & Here black essential v-neck tee
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

While I'm trying to be more adventurous with colour, I do sometimes like to play it safe and stick with the classics. With a neutral black and grey outfit, I thought this pastel pink small Darren bag was the perfect accessory. I was pleased by how well it matched with my Fashion Scarf Girl leaf scarf as well!

It was a wet day and I was working from home so I just needed a comfortable outfit to do the daycare pickup and drop off and sit in front of my computer. Jeans and a tee were perfect for that. These ballet flats have a rubber sole too, perfect for rushing around in the rain.

While it is a simple outfit, I really liked wearing this.


Last worn: black tee, grey skinny jeans, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff small Darren. First time I've worn the scarf on the blog as it's a recent addition to my wardrobe.

Unboxing My Rebecca Minkoff Darren Bag


A quick reveal explaining why I bought this bag, first impressions and different ways you can wear it!








What I wore:

Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
JeansJeanswest prima denim super skinny jeans in absolute black
ShoesWalnut Melbourne Ava White leopard ballet flats
BagRebecca Minkoff small Darren messenger bag in peony

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the outfit above so much, I wore exactly the same one again a few days later. It was a much drier start to the day, and I decided to take my new leopard print ballet flats out for a spin. Keeping them away from the mud the boys seemed to find on our morning walk was tricky, but they were mostly unscathed!

As well as the different shoes, I flipped the colours around in the outfit so it was a grey tee and black jeans, the opposite of the first outfit. Again I accessorised with the same pastel pink bag.

We had a fun morning after our walk at our ABA mother's group catch-up, then a couple of quick errands to run. For a first wear, these shoes were very comfortable. I've shared them on the blog before, although this was the first time I wore them.

Basic V-Neck Tees Under $50:






How You Can Wear It:

Jeans and a tee is a wardrobe staple, especially as a stay at home mum! These outfits are a great example of how you can still wear the classic combination while staying away from the blue jeans rut, with grey and black denim instead. You can also add a little colour to your jeans and tee outfit with some fun accessories. Sticking with a neutral outfit makes accessorising easy as any colour works!
